Jurassic Park III: Danger Zone! is based on the 2001 film Jurassic Park III. One or two players take turns driving their Ford Explorers around the island shown as a game board. Landing on a challenge space launches an arcade-style mini-game in which all players compete. Games include driving 4x4s with a top-down perspective, side-scrolling platform sequences or fighting with dinosaurs. By winning mini-games, challenge points are earned which are used to buy supplies such as first aid kits and a helicopter lift. Dinosaurs can be tagged to collect four DNA samples of a dinosaur selected at the start to win the game. The collected DNA can be used to create printable dinosaurs. The game is marked towards children aged seven and up. Some elements of the game are shared with Jurassic Park III: Dino Defender, developed and released simultaneously.
